ICU: Monitor - CVP trace analysis

4 mo. old, 1-hr postop. after repair of Tetralogy of Fallot.

HR was 171/min about 10 minutes ago. Suspicion of JET has risen.

Analyze CVP trace. Identify the waves.
Which is taller (a or v)?
What happened to c?
Where are X and Y decents?
There is doubt about sinus rhythm vs. JET. EKG is difficult to interpret. Can CVP trace help?
